Stormwater Extraction from Manassas Homes Happens Fast with SERVPRO

9/18/2023 (Permalink)

How Can SERVPRO Help in Storm Water Extraction From Manassas Homes? 

Storm water extraction from your Manassas home can be difficult due to the presence of debris and particulate matter. SERVPRO techs use advanced tools that can remove storm water quickly and efficiently to reduce the impact of water damage..

SERVPRO techs use centrifugal pumps for storm water extraction from flooded Manassas homes. The pumps convert rotational energy from a motor to move fluid. SERVPRO techs use several types of centrifugal pumps, including-

  • Self-priming trash pumps
  • High-pressure pumps
  • Electric submersible pumps

How do SERVPRO Techs Choose the Right Pump During Water Removal Services? 

SERVPRO techs consider several factors before deciding which pump to use to extract floodwater from your home-

  • Does the water contain solids: If the floodwater contains solids, techs use self-priming trash pumps that allow the passage of solids of up to 3”. 
  • How much suction lift is required: If the fluid needs to travel more than 25 feet of distance, SERVPRO techs often use high-pressure pumps.
  • The flow-rate requirements: If a higher flow rate is required, SERVPRO techs use a high-capacity pump to remove several gallons of water per minute (GPM). 

What is a Diaphragm Pump?

Most centrifugal pumps become inoperable if air enters the hose during operation, bringing the water removal process to a halt. SERVPRO techs use a different type of pump called a diaphragm pump to prevent this from happening. Although these are not used often, they can remove water to near zero depth as they are designed not to lose prime even if air enters the pump.
